Use the following paragraph to answer the corresponding question(s).
Masatomo Kawakubo et al. reported in Science in August 2004 that the human stomach contains a natural, carbohydrate-based antibiotic that probably protects a large portion of the population from various diseases caused by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. This bacterium has been linked to peptic ulcers, gastritis, and stomach cancer. This naturally occurring antibiotic is described by Kawakubo as having a terminal 1,4-linked N-acetylglucosamine (NAG), and it acts by inhibiting the biosynthesis of a major component of the cell wall in H. pylori. [Source: M. Kawakubo et al., Science 305 (2004): 1003.]
29) Which of the following structures is most consistent with Kawakubos description of this antibiotic? 29)
30) Refer to the paragraph about Kawakubos group. Kawakubos group created a glycoprotein with a 30) terminal NAG (i.e., a protein with NAG attached to its end). Their hypothesis is that the terminal NAG and not the protein component is responsible for the damage to the cell wall in H. pylori.
What would be the most appropriate control for testing this hypothesis?
A) Expose other species of bacteria to the glycoprotein.
B) Grow H. pylori in a test tube (in vitro) with no glycoprotein.
C) Destroy the H. pylori by exposing them to a hypotonic solution. Then add the glycoprotein
and observe.
D) Grow H. pylori in a test tube with glycoprotein that has its terminal NAG removed.
31) In what way do carbohydrates contain and/or display information for cells? 31) A) Actually, carbohydrates have no role in containing or displaying information for cells.
B) Carbohydrates display information in order to bond to substrates and catalyze reactions. C) Carbohydrates contain and display information at the cell surface.
D) Carbohydrates store information in the nucleus.

21) Fats store more energy per unit mass. Animals move and plants dont (for most of their life cycle) so plants can afford
a less dense energy form of energy storage. An interesting extension of this idea is looking at when plants store energy in the form of fats: in their seeds. Seeds need to be dispersed, so presumably there is selection for lighter seeds for great dispersal. Students typically know the answers here (fat is more calorically dense, plant seeds have fat, etc.) but often dont make the leap of linking this to the molecules chemical structure. This question always sparks a lot of group or class discussion.
